The San Jose Hospice Program is opening a holiday hunger assistance event.
"This is the first time we opened the event to people and give them more to the public. You do not necessarily have to come to our customers," said Orley Culverhouse, Caring Hearts Children's Program Coordinator. In it, children and adolescents live for children ages 6 to 18. "We look forward to having a good participation and using it to know what people are offering."
The event, during the holiday season, will take place on the 11th, on holiday, from 6:30 p.m. 8:30 p.m. Families with children with lost experiences will be remembered for decorating the gingerbread house and candlelight candles. Information and resources on the holiday season will also be provided.
"Holidays can be very difficult for people, so the biggest thing we can do is just prepare and think," said Culverhouse. "What traditions are important and we want to keep up to date, we want to change or eliminate traditions? Give yourself permission to plan and plan ahead with the family."
The Hospize program is staffed by 400 to 500 clients every year, at no cost, to disseminate and educate the community.
Culverhouse said the most important thing is to have families grieving to find an honorable deceased person.
"When someone dies, he kills his body, but his relationship with them is not one," he said. "And it is only a large part of what we do in the hospice that encourages people to continue this relationship with the person."
A different support for adult breakfast will be made in collaboration with the Cordton Family Health Team Lambton Center Health Group on December 10 at 6:30 p.m. 8:30 p.m. Participants interested in RSVP at 519-882-2500.
